The Annual Hanley Awards is the high point of the year for our owners. This black-tie gala is held on Saturday night at each Getaway. It is an Oscar-like awards program recognizing video excellence in our HVSN studios.
Be a winner at the Hanleys!
It all starts in April and May when studios begin submitting their best projects of the year in several categories to a panel of judges. Then, on Wednesday night of the Getaway in July, three nominees are announced for each category. At the Hanley Awards our Master Ceremonies Andy Conte (who is a studio owner and who coined the term "The Hanleys") announces each category, reads the names of the nominees, then open the envelope and reads the winner's name. As the winner comes up to accept their award we show a short clip of the winning entry on our big video screen.
Here's a list of the categories that we recognize:
Best Photo Keepsake Video
Cut and Paste Award for Editing
Best Video Production
Best Event Video
Best Short Video
Best Long Form Video
Best Sports Video
Best TV/Web Video
Best Memorial Video
Best Company Promo
Best Studio Promo/Trailer
Best Rookie Video
Best Use of Post Production
"Dr. Strangelove" Award
President's Award - "Best of Show" (Selected by Robert Hanley as Best Overall video)
Become an HVSN studio owner, submit your videos and start preparing your acceptance speech!
We also recognize outstanding studios with Achievement Awards, including Rookie of the Year and the coveted Studio Owner of the Year. Would you like to be the next Hanley winner? Whether it's an HVS owner's first Hanley Awards or they are in their second decade, there is no night that makes them prouder to be part of the HVS network!

"Tammy and I came to a Show 'N Tell Saturday. The initial conversation was Robert talking about what it is to be a Home Video studio Owner. Of course we'd listened to the CD's over and over in our car for a couple of months. I think Then we had the presentation and we signed right there at the end of the presentation."
- John Montgomery - Newark, OH.
"Our Show 'N Tell Saturday was on May 11, 2002 - Mother's Day weekend! We were already operating our own video business, but we wanted to run it at a higher level with better equipment. We needed a plan and a system like the one offered by Home Video Studio. If you're thinking about HVS, you should go to Show 'N Tell Saturday."

Here's what we'll cover at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
The number one thing we'll cover is making money in the video business. I'll cover pricing video as well as collecting the money. What's the difference between a $500.00 video and a $5000.00 video? Are you leaving money on the table? I'll teach you how we do it! Oh... what about a $30,000.00 video?
ADVERTISING & MARKETING
This is the great unknown for most people who attempt to enter our industry. How do you get business and find clients? I'll share with you.
TRAINING & SUPPORT
I'll cover our 12 month and 21 day in person training program in depth. How do we take you from where you are now to where you want to be? We are very good at this as long as you can take that first step and get to Show 'N Tell!
You'll be in my studio all day so we'll definitely get into the nitty gritty on equipment and gear. How will you outfit your studio? Do you have current equipment that can be used? Maybe and if so that will save you some money.
Home Video Studio is a short cut to success. You may be looking for both financial success and creative achievements - money in the bank and an Oscar! We make no promises except to put you in an environment with others who have the same vision. Our mission is to help you achieve success as you define it.
Not everyone is out to make a fortune. Home Video Studio is a very fun and exciting business and lifestyle. Want to turn your hobby into a real live functioning studio? We can do that for you. Want to get your family involved in the business? We'll help train them. This is a very family friendly business.
We'll discuss transitions and getting started. Going to quit your job? Come out of retirement? Convert a 401k? Will you work the studio part time until you can go full time? We will start designing a plan for you at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
We are experts in funding and financing. If you need us to help you find the money we would be happy to. It is easy to convert a 401k or IRA with zero penalty. Many people do a refi or a home equity loan. There are other avenues as well. One of the things we do on Saturday afternoon is cover financing. It's not that difficult. If you need consultation on funding call us.
We suggest you bring your spouse/partner to our Show 'N Tell Saturday. That's our treat. You'll know a whole lot more about running a Home Video Studio by end of day on Saturday!
